In the last episode, we learned about the Drupal Subuser module. In this episode, we continue where we left off but take a look under the hood at the module code of the Drupal Subuser module.

By following along with this episode you will learn some things such as:

  • How to open up a Drupal module file and what to expect
  • How to find and locate an issue within a Drupal module file
  • How modules modify forms with hook_form_alter()
  • How to debug PHP variables in a Drupal module
  • How to test our fix to ensure it works correctly

If you have never seen a Drupal module before this might be a little intimidating and I might go a little fast, but you will still learn a lot. You should be able to start seeing patterns within different Drupal modules on how modules are structured. Good luck and happy module investigating!
